Folsom Loses A Friend
Posted 05 September 2012 - 11:13 AM
"W. Scott Murray, 55, of Folsom, beloved husband of Pam Sakamoto-Murray and adored father to Skye Murray, passed away unexpectedly on August 28, 2012.
Scott is also survived by his mother, Sandra Owen, of La Quinta, CA, Cindy (Rick) Martinez of Arlington, WA, and Shari (Charlie) Ambler of Folsom, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
Scott was a real estate appraiser who enjoyed an active life playing tennis, biking, going to the beach and sharing special times with family and friends. He will be missed by all those touched by his affable demeanor and generous spirit.
A "Murvlus" Celebration of Life will be held on the tennis courts at Broadstone Racquet Club, 820 Halidon Way, Folsom, CA at 6:30 p.m., Friday, September 7, 2012. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Skye Murray Scholarship Fund in care of U.S. Bank, 2379 Iron Point Road, Folsom, CA 95630, Attn: Charles Henderson."
Those of you who knew Scott know what a wonderful guy he was. For those who didn't I can tell you that he loved his family and his community and really seemed to get that these are the important things in life. He and his wife Pam were together about 25 years, which is pretty long by today's standards. He has a beautiful daughter he just sent off to college. He was the kind of person who connected with people quickly and easily. Being in the same biz, we'd bounce questions and ideas off of one another every now and then, and we had lunch last year, but we know so many of the same people and were similar in many ways, that without planning it, we'd run into each other on many different occasions.
He was at a friend's Christmas party, another friend's birthday party, he lead the Family Cruiser Ride around Lake Natoma for Cyclebration, he attended public events such as the gallery exhibit openings and building dedications.
We ran into each other at Lowe's last year and before we knew it, we'd put in an hour of jabber about everything and nothing. Running into each other is how we usually ended up talking, and I was always glad I ran into him.
He seemed to know everybody, and since I posted info about his passing on Facebook, I've been contacted by many people I didn't realize he had connected with.
It's easy to and expected that we say nice things about folks after they pass, but Scott really was a genuine nice guy and an important part of this community.
I will miss him.
